SAOAO’s first meeting took place on September 4th, 2013 in Riland Auditorium from 12 – 1 pm.
The meeting began with the President and e-board introduction, followed by an explanation of their various roles in the organization.
Many of our enthusiastic first years ran for the position of first year representative, and in the end two candidates were elected. Plans for SAOAO’s year were explained to the attending club members including a suture workshop, a splinting workshop, and a trauma orthopedics lecture by guest speaker Dr. Leslie.
The group went through a raffle in which those who had received tickets during the activities fair participated. Prizes included a first aid book, Sambrook’s The Musculoskeletal System, Netter’s flash cards, and SAOAO shirts.
Finally, it was explained to members how to sign up for national membership online using the AOAO and website link provided to them.
